Freedom of Information Act Request for Accounting of Olive Budget Surplus

I am sending the following freedom of information act request to the Town of Olive Town Supervisor, Berndt Leifeld. The Democratic Party lied to the American people. It claimed to be the party of the poor and middle class. But when Barack Obama was elected, his first and so far only tangible series of acts was to transfer four trillion dollars to America's super-rich. That is the largest example of corruption in American history. If you combine the corruption associated with Jay Gould, Jim Fiske, John D. Rockefeller, Willy Durant and his insider trading while at General Motors, the corruption on Wall Street in the 1920s that preceded the Great Depression, Enron, Worldcom and the other late 1990s scandals, the S&L crisis of the late 1980s, you combine them, and triple them, they are less than the corruption associated with Barack Obama and the Democratic Party of 2009. Yet, the American media continues to crow about the Mr. Obama's supernatural powers. He is not only the most corrupt president, he is the most corrupt individual in American history.

In our little Town of Olive, we see a microcosm. Corrupt Democrats, who justified the massive wealth transfer to banking interests in the name of "deflation", aim to raise taxes by nearly nine percent. It doesn't bother the Democrats to talk about "deflation" and nine percent tax increases (with utterly no concomitant increases in services) in the same breath. The degree of stupidity and corruption in American politics is nonpareil.

After two trips to the Town of Olive offices I was able to obtain a copy of the September 2009 year-to-date budget variances. The variances indicate that spending has been at approximately 69% of the budget but 75% of the year has passed. That makes it difficult to understand why a nine percent tax increase is necessary.

I reproduce the letter, which I am sending certified mail this morning.

RE: Freedom of Information Act Request

Dear Mr. Leifeld:

Thank you for providing most of the budget reports I requested upon my second trip to your office. I have a few questions for public consumption.

1. The highway and general fund budgets indicate that the Town has spent 69.01% of the amount budgeted as of September 30, but 75% of the year had passed as of that date. This indicates a budget surplus.

2. Where do budget surpluses get deposited and what are the balances in all of those accounts?

3. When have surplus, unspent monies been used to reduce taxes, and when have they been used to increase special and earmarked accounts?

4. This is a freedom of information act request for copies of all current monthly or quarterly bank account and certificate of deposit (not to exceed 50 pages) statements pertaining to the Town of Olive Highway Fund; the Town of Olive General fund; and special or earmarked funds. These should encompass all town cash, certificate of deposit and other liquid holdings.

5. If (4) does not encompass all town cash holdings I would appreciate an explanation as to what funds have been excluded.

6. This is a freedom of information act request for the accounting reconciliation of cash and fund accounts involving end-of-year transfers from the Town’s general and highway funds to earmarked accounts (not to exceed 25 pages).
